This amp is available for audition anytime, located 80 minute drive NE of Salt Lake City, Utah (Providence 84332).
Electra-Fidelity unnamed model, stereo, single 12AT7 input shared between both channels, single EL34 per channel, clips at 11.2W, 31 lbs. Plays like 20-25W.
This amp is all new and original 2014 circuit by Jack Elliano, with all transformers (and single PS choke) hand wound by Jack. No info yet posted on this amp at Electra-Fidelity website. (On 28 February 2015 E-F distributor Tony Chipelo stated only two standard E-F models now, this EL34 and a coming 845 amp estimate $12k/stereo.)
At 2014 Newport THE Show we displayed Jack's esteemed $10k/pr A3-500 300B mono blocs. This new EL34 is competitive, even at 1/3 the cost. One of my all time favorite amps. Direct AB encouraged with cost no object amp of any power rating, with any well designed speaker (in other words, one requiring moderate current and voltage).
Hear it powering AudioKinesis Dream Maker LCS (see link), with new smaller LCS speaker (HWD only 12 x 17 x 20), with all-new radiation pattern I co-invented with Duke LeJeune of AudioKinesis.
Each amp custom manufactured in Las Vegas, NV. 50% deposit required. Any two solid color options (no metallic) for chassis and transformer/choke bells.
Wood crate coming, with 2" high density "camera packing foam" all around, for safe transport and five minute packing/unpacking.
Text from my recent email to Tony and Jack: "Tell Jack Debra and I both think it's the best amp we owned or hear. My SS is killer, and sounds like a cassette vs. the EL34. The amp is dead neutral, but elicits emotional response like the typical syrupy vintage tube coveted for this quality. The amp maximizes emotional response to the music but lacks every negative trait associated with tubes. It's that good. Honest, this is the best bass I ever heard, tube or SS. Did I say I like it?"
Just because I am biased does not mean you should not audition this amp!
Black/maroon demo ETA late March.
